MORE FROM PAUL HARVEY #12

And here’s another timeless item from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department hears from Oceanside, California.

Robber wearing a motorcycle helmet and carrying a gun strode into the branch bank . . .

Selected a teller who appeared fiftyish, soft, kindly, an easy mark . . .

And handed her a note demanding money or her life.

Money or I’ll blow your head off–words to that effect.

The woman reached for the cash drawer . . .

Then she looked again at the note . . .

And her eyes flashed . . .

Her lips clenched . . .

She pulled the entire cash drawer out . . .

But instead of giving him money . . .

She clobbered the robber over the head with the drawer . . .

And again and again . . .

And she is scolding him . . .

Money is flying everywhere and she is beating him and shouting shame on him and bouncing blows off his helmet . . .

Until the young man turned and ran.

Police caught him in nearby shrubbery.

THEN they asked the woman teller . . .

How come she was about to give him money at gunpoint and then, suddenly, instead, became enraged?

She said, “In his note there was a very naughty word.”

July 18, 1979
